    Default Covid-19, Coronavirus panic buying

    So how many of you were caught off guard by the coronavirus panic buying? First of water, hand sanitizer and toilet paper, and then the run on guns and ammo?

    Were you already prepared or did you need to rush out and buy extra supplies?

    Yeah, us too. I figure a truckers strike alone could paralyze much of the country let alone a pandemic.

    Around here it seems many are attempting to return to normal life. Many stores i passed today had full parking lots again. Of course they were all "essential" businesses.

    Been prepped for a long time. Watched people doing battle over toilet paper. I found it rather amusing.

    No one is laughing at Preppers anymore .....

    Welcome back...Or have I missed other posts by you.

    Again, I think it is wonderful that you have the resources you do. Very few do. I'm happy to have 6 months, maybe a bit more of supplies on hand. I add to them all the time. I will never get to the level you have, but I will get to the best I can be.

    Have you seen some states are stopping the sale of garden seeds? Other than control of the population what possible reason can there be for this.

    Also interesting is how many anti-gunners are buying their first firearms.

    Yeah, it has spilled over into two other smaller rooms (mostly home canned fruits and sauces). Been loading up on more bulk supplies before the "Bat Stew Flu" hit and now may have to add more via online sales. Meanwhile, adding more rice and the wife is tuning up her baking skills with homemade breads, rolls and pastries. Even got the old wheat mill working again. Since it looks like we could be in a new Great Depression we are learning what holes we have in our supplies and what we may need to add. Wife has been working the garden pretty hard the last couple weeks and when I get home next week she has a "honey do list" waiting for me.

    I read that the panic buying on ammo sparked up again. No worries. Been planning for that too.
